Swedish retro rockers Graveyard released their sophomore LP Hisingen Blues this past April via Nuclear Blast. They're definitely channelling tons of Zeppelin on the album, but also paying homage to other '70s heroes with song titles like "Uncomfortably Numb" and "Ungrateful Are The Dead." You can check out the video for the album's title track below.
Graveyard were originally scheduled to play Fun Fun Fun Fest, which went down in Austin this past weekend, but had to drop off the fest after canceling their US dates due to visa issues. Now they're planning another US run in early 2012 which kicks off at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on January 12. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (11/11) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (10/9) at noon. Hopefully they'll be able to make it over to the US this time.
All dates on the tour are with fellow throwback riffers Radio Moscow. Radio Moscow dropped their third LP, The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz last month via Alive Naturalsound. Two of the album's tracks are available to stream below.
